    Luggage and bags: Suitcases are fine. We took a small rucksack to carry around our essential guide book, wallet and light umbrella.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Comfortable casual for the day and smart casual for the evening. We felt slightly underdressed when leaving and returning to the hotel (Mandarin Oriental) in our shorts and t-shirts because most visitors were business people or their rich wives! We decided we would still stay there and still wear the same clothes if we were a lot richer and so rose above it!!

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: Don't need a bikini really. The only beach we went to was Shek O and a relax in the bar overlooking the beach was more suitable.

    Luggage and bags: Travel light, you can buy clothes there. I like the Chinese Arts and Crafts store in Tsim Shat Sui-the short sleve shirts are wonderful. See also the silk under shirts.
    It is a mild climate in spring, fall and winter. You will see the Chinese wearing scarves and winter coats while you are either in shirt sleves or a light jacket. Very hot and muggy in the summer. But, don't forget a swim suit because Hong Kong has some great beaches.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Great place for walking so bring walking shoes. They are exxpensive to buy here so bring yours. Treat yourself to a pair of handmade shoes at Vogue Shoes in Tsim Shat Shu.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Generally other than a few weeks over Christmas/New year, Hong Kong is hot and humid! Light clothing, good walking shoes are essential. However in those winter months over Christmas it can get cold, bring long pants and a jacket.

    Hongkong skyline

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: although the temperatures are fairly high year around, it is absolutely necessary to bring a sweater or something warm with you, since the airconditioned buildings are chilly!!!!
